adidas and Tyshawn Jones release the TYSHAWN signature model in its premier Green/White colorway. The shoe marks a milestone for adidas and Jones, as one of the youngest team riders on the team. Created side-by-side with former pro skater and Footwear Design Director, Scott Johnston, the silhouette is a visual statement built for and tested by Jones himself.
With basketball aesthetics and design elements, the signature footwear integrates an Adituff reinforced toe, EVA midsole, and inner vulc wrap. A PU molded sockliner and memory foam tongue add a layer of comfort necessary for all-day wear.
“It symbolizes that if you keep working hard, you can get the things you actually want and dream—you just have to go through the stepping stones,” Jones says.
In addition to his signature sneaker, Tyshawn has co-designed two apparel pieces for the FW19 delivery. Jones adds a nod to his bulldog Snickers, embroidering the crowned canine into the black and white Firebird track jacket. The piece pays homage to the day Jones signed to the brand, wearing the same jacket back in 2014. Triple-white cargo pants complement the outerwear, sporting the same bulldog motif and detachable pant legs.
The Green/White Tyshawn colorway shoe will retail for $85 with its apparel counterparts, the TJ Firebird and Cargo pant, retailing for $85 USD and $80 USD. Each piece will be available from July 18th at specialty skateboard retailers worldwide and on the adidas Skateboarding website.
